Today we talk about Cony, another talented artist from New Jersey who has managed to capture the attention of many at a rapid pace. His Soundcloud account reflects 11k - 35k plays each track and I see why. He’s putting in work for a niche audience and they’re loving it. Cony specializes in poetry… poetry infused with flow and urban culture. What makes Cony a powerhouse is his level of professionalism, genuine support and understanding of healthy networking. Plus, the girls got a thing for the homie.
In a quick interview we got Cony to answer a couple of questions. Check it out.
H|E: Cony, welcome brother. Glad to have you here. I see your single “Waves” getting a lot of attention. I salute you for that. Now tell the world where you from and how you came up with “CONY”?
Cony: I’m from Linden NJ & Carteret NJ, repping PoetrySpeakz & Hip Hop Everything. My actual name is Marcony But I Dropped The First Three Letters Off.
H|E: That's love. Considering the fact that you’re working in a market of your own, what kind of message you tend to send through your music and why?
Cony: The type of music I put out is very different. The style of Music I put I put out is a mix of Poetry, RNB, Rap & Soul all put together. I just want to tell stories, I just want to educate the mind and heal the broken, I AM THE VOICE OF THE VOICELESS!
H|E: That’s dope Cony. What got you here, how did it all start?
Cony: Wow actually my background to music is very interesting. I lost my grandmother to cancer and I took the blame for her death. I was lost myself trying to find myself and I was in a very dark place, when I thought things couldn’t get worst my father had THREE heart attacks. Growing up was just a lot, especially being separated from your birth mother and being the oldest out of Six kids was a lot to take on alone. I began writing on the walls in my room but my mother was not having that so I began writing in a little yellow notebook. I was that kid that you seen around that always carried that yellow note book and never let anyone read it because inside that notebook was my deepest thoughts.
H|E: Cony, you obviously placed yourself in a lane of your own. Want to elaborate on that?
Cony: Man in this music field its NON STOP competition. I put myself in a different lane where I just make good music, the more you compete with other artists the more you force yourself to reach expectations that you may never reach one day. I just do me I’ve been killing this music game hitting Over 3K plays a week so aye my methods must be working.
H|E: I peeped game man, that’s a good look. Besides that, what other achievements you proud of and what can the fans expect next?
Cony: Where do I even start? Well my songs were aired on the radio , I got a couple radio interviews with celebrity bloggers, I was mentioned as “ Soundcloud’s Top 10 Best New Artist “ , I got one of the BEST project about to release and one of the dopest DJ’s hosting it. So I’m very proud.
I am currently working on the new mixtape called “ FLOWETRY II “ which DJ Tarzan from The Plug, The Next Big Showcase is hosting he is also involved with The Source and Hot97. I have artists from: L.A , NY, CALI & ect. Featured on this project I’m expanding. After this project I’m trying to go behind the music such as producing, writing for other artists and more things like that.
H|E: Awesome Cony. I see great things for you in the future, keep grinding and make sure you keep us updated with that new project.
Make sure you follow CONY:
